Soliciting Suggested Themes For February Photo Contest--UPDATED

Hi everyone, this is my virgin run at hosting the contest and I would like to see what should be the theme. I have some ideas to offer but someone might have something better. Since it's winter and February at that, I was hoping to incorporate a February tone with something fun.

So here we go...

I will decide Monday or Tuesday and take the next steps shortly afterward.

ETA: I changed three of the selections (#7) because those option didn't work. Feel free to change your selection if you like.

I'll leave this up for the weekend at least.

Former Forest Supervisor: Why I Resigned Over a Public Land Dispute

An essay by Gloria Flora tangled with this issue over 20 years ago. It was a case study in my graduate work, I met her right after she resigned, a very impressive woman of incredible intellect who gave up her retirement because of this crap.

Bringing the hammer down on the Bundys won't fix the much bigger problems our lands face

"...The term “cowboy welfare” didn’t materialize out of thin air. Grazing allotments on public land are privileges, not rights, subsidized by fees 93% cheaper than private pasture in the West. Many small and mid-sized ranching operations can’t pencil out if they are not using subsidized grazing on public lands.

That’s an extremely stressful realization and a symptom of artificially controlled markets, corporate mergers of meat-packers (there are only four in the U.S.) and a globalized economic system that no longer rewards American values of pluck and boot-straps. It’s not the fault of environmentalists, East Coast liberals or a federal agency. There are larger forces at work here. Fighting symptoms does not cure the disease.

And for actual evidence...

please view this piece presented by Rachel Maddow on 9/30 which has numerous instances on recorded media indicating the intent of these individuals to shut down the government...

Obama signs Monsanto Protection Act! It's Time to Label GMOs!

Obama signs Monsanto Protection Act! It's Time to Label GMOs!


We regret to inform you that late last night President Barack Obama signed H.R. 993, which contained the Monsanto Protection Act into law. President Obama knowingly signed the Monsanto Protection Act over the urgent pleas of more than 250,000 Americans who asked that he use his executive authority to veto it. President Obama failed to live up to his oath to protect the American people and our constitution.

Suddenly I feel extremely betrayed and have now lost most of my faith in our government, particularly the folks at 1600 PA Ave. In fact, I'm pretty pissed off at this point. All I have to say...
